Let There Be (New) Light

February 15, 2014 § 3 Comments

ImageTake a look at your lamps. Have they been on the same side tables for more than 20 years? 30 even? (okay that’s scary) Listen up. One of the easiest and cheapest updates you can do for your house is to exchange the old lighting for something fresh, colorful, and uplifting.

New lamps come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some with colored glass, some with clear. Some have updated metals, some are made to look old. But all have crisp shades with a nice clean barrel shape. (Traditional lamps are still, well, traditional. They will never go out of style. But you know what kind of outdated lamps I mean. Check out your grandmother’s family room, decorated circa 1968. Now you get it.)

You do not have to spend a lot of money. You can shop at a fancy lighting store or Target and get an updated look.

And while you’re looking at lighting, check out your ceiling fixtures. For a few bills at a home improvement store, you can switch out the old brass candelabra flush-mount fixture for something MUCH more current. The change will transform the house — you will see it in a whole new … (wait for it) … LIGHT.

  • I saw a couple of lamps similar to this one recently and loved them! I didn’t buy them but you have me thinking that perhaps I should revisit that store and see if they’re still around. Not sure the turquoise color goes with the rest of my decor but I so love turquoise!
